With E3 fast approaching news that Ubisoft’s new pirate game Skull & Bones won’t be joining the line up this year.
Ubisoft have announced Skull & Bones wont be on their showcase this year on their Twitter account.
The game was first announced back in 2017 at E3 and is being developed by the same studio (Ubisoft Singapore) that made Assassins Creed: Black Flag.
Skull & Bones was also meant to spur on a imminent TV show of the same name, the game and TV show do not impact each other like other games such as defiance have done in the past.
Sadly due to the games delay, the TV show too will be delayed now, and we’ve had no update on when this will be getting a release date.
Ubisoft have other major triple A titles in the works, such as:
- Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon: Breakpoint
- Currently untitled Assasins creed game
There are also rumors of a new watch dogs title, as well as rumors of a new Splinter cell title, but only time will tell if these rumors are true or not.
For now we must be patient and make do with the cinematic trailer of Skull & Bones and hope for no further delays.
There have been a few attempts at pirate games in recent years, with mixed reviews and quality, check them out and let us know your thoughts on them:
- https://store.steampowered.com/app/420290/Blackwake/ (one of the better ones)
- https://www.seaofthieves.com/ Whilst popular, I wasn’t a big fan of this one while trying it in beta, although it must be worth another try as I have heard recent good things about it. If you are an Xbox one owner you can pick this up on the game pass.
